Triple Chocolate Mocha Cake
55 mins (prep 15, cooking 40)
16 ingredients
12 servings
This is just as easy as any cake from a box and much more flavourful. I needed to use up some pantry ingredients and this recipe is what I came up with. The Beau bought some Hershey's SPECIAL DARK Cocoa by mistake, he thought it was hot cocoa mix, otherwise it might not have been a product I would have ever purchased. If you don't have it you could probably substitute another dutch-processed cocoa but your results might not be quite the same as mine. I made cupcakes so I could portion them out to freeze some and they were rich enough to not really need frosting but please frost as you like. They came out as black as night, my co-workers asked what food colouring I added to get them like that, to which I happily replied "None!". The Beau said they were "Too chocolatey and too moist" so count yourself warned, lol. The recipe made 24 cupcakes and would make two 8" round or square cakes, or a 9x13. Adjust your time slightly according to which units you're baking.
